My Stable pointers: Tuesday
We pick out an eyecatcher or two from Tuesday's action you might want to add to your My Stable tracker.

If you missed Ian Ogg's comprehensive wrap-up of his eyecatchers from Epsom and elsewhere over the weekend, I strongly suggest you give it a look by clicking here.
I can't pretend to have anything like as much to offer from Tuesday's two British Flat cards, especially when there were so many to get your teeth stuck into from the weekend, most notably - for me - Barnet Fair, who surely looks to have a great chance of breaking his duck for his new stable before long.
But a couple of names to pluck out from the evening card at Lingfield include Last Minute Lisa and Flawless Pink.
As is sometimes the case at Lingfield on the turf track, those horses racing against the stands' rail were hard to claw back a couple of times and the first three home in the 32Red Tomb Raider Slot Handicap were drawn 11, 10 and 12 in the 12-runner contest. As such Last Minute Lisa's fourth (from stall four) is worth upgrading. As is his usual custom, Richard Hughes wasn't hard on his mount when it became apparent that she couldn't win.
But it was Flawless Pink who really caught the eye as she rattled home for second behind easy winner Felwah in the opening maiden.
I wouldn't want to get carried away by the form of the race as Felwah was comfortably held in an unimpressive Goodwood maiden on her debut, but I did like the way Flawless Pink made his ground up down the middle of the track away from the rail and kept on strongly in the last 100 yards to finish a clear second.
Trainer Jeremy Noseda simply can't buy a winner at present, but the signs are encouraging that the stable is ready to resume winning ways and this filly could well be among those to supply the successes.
Report from the Gallops:
Richard Hannon worked some horses in line for racecourse duty later in the week, with several juveniles going through their paces.
L'ETACQ has done well since an encouraging debut effort when just out of the frame.
He looked strong at the finish of his stretch and is worth monitoring for Goodwood on Friday.
AZMAAM is an attractive son of Dark Angel and he breezed beautifully ahead of his debut at Kempton tomorrow.
ST BRELADES BAY troubled the judge on his own introduction and looked in good order stretching out ahead of a Newbury maiden this Thursday.
He has undoubtedly progressed and should be hard to beat.
HAWKMEISTER is entered for the same race and has worked well, although he is expected to come on for the run.
Several three-year-olds have been giving off encouraging signals, including AFTER THE GOLDRUSH.
He reacted favourably to headgear to sluice home at Windsor and is in the mood to follow up.
BOLD SPIRIT ran well to again trouble the judge last time and should be effective in his race this week.
SEBASTIAN BEACH has had his confidence boosted by a recent win. With that victory under his belt he can show further improvement, a point reflected in some sterling recent work with other winners.
LIGEIA will return at Kempton after skipping some engagements because of the ground.
